  Latin Name Bryonopsis laciniosa
English Name Lollipop plant
Hindi Name Shivlingi
Part Used Seed

Bryonopsis laciniosa is a herb common in India. This plant is a member of Cucurbitaceae plant family. This is a herbaceous, slender, extensive, monoecious climber. The leaves are palmately 3-7 lobed, membranous, and glabrous. The flowers are creamy white, in axillary fascicles. The berries are nearly sphericle and smooth. The seeds are obovate, creamy-white or pale yellow, minutely scorbiculate. The flowering season is August to December.

Shivlingi cleanses and nourishes the Artavavaha Shrotas. It restores the balance of Apana Vata, Prana Vata and Ranjaka Pitta and thereby rejuvenates female generative organs and promotes regular menstruation. It is also described as a prominent Garbhkar Herb in Ayurveda.

1Shivlingi has showed antimicrobial activity. It also showed antibacterial and significant antifungal activity against a wide range of gram positive and gram negative bacteria and fungi. The antibacterial (minimum inhibitory concentration) effect against Bacillus cereus and Shigella shiga was found to be 64 microg/ml.
